a moment, but back here in washington, the critical question is, are u.s. taxpayers, in effect, footing the bill for the continuing violence? joining me now, two members of the senate armed services committee, democrat jack reed of rhode island and republican kelly ayotte of new hampshire. senators, welcome to you both. senator ayotte, straight to you. several weeks ago, this question came up -- should we keep the u.s. aid flowing to egypt? you said yes then. have you had a change of heart now? >> well, i think, david, in light of recent actions, we tried to give some time to the administration. they obviously tried to get the military government to not crack down in a violent way, to restore democracy, to move to elections, to release political prisoners. they have ignored all of those requests. and now with the recent violent crackdown, i do not see how we can continue aid. i believe it must be suspended because, unfortunately, i think the military's gotten the impression, and particularly with what the president not asking for aid to be suspended when he spoke this week, that whateve

in psychology of fear which you wrote about in the "the washington post" this week. america's chronic overreaction to terrorism, we have created an economy of fear, an industry of fear, a national psychology of fear. al qaeda could have never achieved that on its own. we have inflicted it on ourselves. >> fundamentally, there are two sets of questions that apply in the war against terrorism. the one set of questions deals with the where's it going to happen, what's going to happen, and when is it going to happen. the other set of questions deals with what is it that our enemy, the terrorists, are trying to achieve? what are they trying to induce us to do? take a look at what's been happening over the past week. with a conference call, al qaeda has effectively shut down 20 u.s. embassies around north africa and the middle east. we just had the president of yemen here for a meeting with president obama. he goes back feeling wonderful about his new relationship with the president. next thing the president does is says in effect, sorry, but we don't trust you yemenis to protect your embas

. >> what i can tell you is there are a lot of republicans in washington who are scared. they're scared of being beaten up politically. >> are you scared about taking on the president over the budget? >> i think dick knows that i haven't been afraid to step out and take on my own party and take on others within the administration to make sure that we do the right thing. i've never been scared since i've been in d.c. other than when i get classified briefings. so, you know, i appreciate senator cruz's passion, his intent to want to defund obama care. i'd love to do it too. but shutting down the government and playing into the hands of the president politically is not the right thing to do. plus it's going to do great harm to the american people if we pursued that course. >> senator durbin, final point here with a few seconds left. >> i can just tell you senator cruz is part of a few extreme people in the senate when it comes to this subject, calling for shutting down the government of the united states, even shutting down the american economy to make his political point. that's not the r
